A (since deleted - Ed, May 31) petition called 'Remove Jeremy Vine from the BBC' has been created on, with the intention of removing cycling safety advocate and BBC presenter, Jeremy Vine, from his role with the UK national broadcaster. 

The petition appears to relate to a cycle ride Vine completed with Detective Chief Superintendent Andy Cox and other police officers from the Met, as part of the JustGiving campaign: The Andy Cox Challenge 2022. Aimed at raising money for RoadPeace - a charity supporting people affected by road crashes and also campaigning for safer roads - Vine completed the ride to raise awareness of the campaign.
